So as most of you know, I am super new here. I have been running around on the TFW forums like a chicken with my head cut off. In the last few days I have: -Purchased a Nixon Display Case to convert in a TF Showpiece Box -Bought 10 TF Toys, including a MP Thundercracker, G1 Grapple, G1 Inferno in Box, G1 Jetfire, G1 Soundwave and some G1 Cassettes. -Made several trips to Target/Walmart/Toys R Us/Vintage Toys to look/see TF Toys. -Read Wikipedia / TFWF2005 / ShMax / BBTS Store Inventory / TFS Inventory -Made 100 Posts on the TF2005 Forums You guy's dont know me, but I do facebook, social media and graphics for a living. This means I am in the computer seat 60 hours a week, and I am self employed. Such reckless abandon gives me both dispensable income and a lot of free time... And as I have browsed these forums, and got to reading the many comments and threads from some of the 70,000+ Members I began to see a very obvious difference in some members approach to collecting. Which is where I get to the main point and question of this thread: For you, how much is too much to spend on a Transformers figure? I see some people are bargain hunters. I see some people dont want to spend more than $30 a figure. I see some people willing to wait on a US MP Soundwave to save $100, even though they have no way to know if a MP Soundwave will ever be released by Hasbro in the US. I see some people who have been waiting 28 years for the opportunity to spend 170 on a MP quality Soundwave, and have already pre-purchased. I see some people who think $200+ territory is a BIG DEAL. I see some people who think that a $600+ 3rd Party Devastator Clone is totally worth it. I see some people who dont have $600 in a collection that has been 5 years in the making. I guess the point is, that it goes without saying that we are all different. We are all in different places in life, with different amounts to spend, and different ideas of the level of important this hobby means to us. None is right or wrong, it just is what it is. So, what is it? What is your limit? Why?
